Rudy Gobert Leads The Timberwolves Past The Trail Blazers

----- Rudy Gobert scored 25 points on 9-of-10 shooting and grabbed 16 rebounds as the Minnesota Timberwolves topped the Portland Trail Blazers 119-114 Monday night at Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Rudy Gobert had 25 points and 16 rebounds for his 43rd double-double of the season, Michael Conley added 19 points and seven assists, and the Minnesota Timberwolves completed a four-game season sweep of Portland, beating the Trail Blazers 119-114 Monday night.

Anfernee Simons led Portland (17-43) with a game-high 34 points and a career-high 14 assists and Duop Reath scored a career-high 26 points on 10-of-14 shooting playing in place of Deandre Ayton (sprained hand).

Jerami Grant (right quad soreness), Scoot Henderson (right adductor strain), and Malcolm Brogdon (elbow tendonitis) joined Ayton on Portland's inactive list Monday night.

Portland trailed 88-82 entering the fourth quarter, but Minnesota scored the first nine-points of the final period to build a double-digit lead at 97-82.

A three-pointer by Simons cut the deficit to six at 115-109 with 30 seconds remaining but Portland was unable to get over the hump.

Up Next- The Trail Blazers return home to start a six-game homestand Wednesday night against the Oklahoma City Thunder. The game is scheduled to tip off at 7:00 PM. Blazers Gameday will start at 4:30 PM on 620 Rip City Radio.

Chad's Take- Great effort from the undermanned Trail Blazers in Minnesota.
